The Mandalorian: Behind the Camera

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, streaming exclusively on Disney+, is a weekly behind-the-scenes documentary series delving into the legacy of Star Wars and the making of The Mandalorian.

Series showrunner Jon Favreau (The Lion King) moderates a roundtable with cast and crew in a fun and accessible format. For fans (myself included) who can't get enough of this, there's ATX TV... from the Couch!

The 3-day virtual series (available on YouTube) includes a pre-recorded panel with creator and writer Jon Favreau, executive producer and director Dave Filoni, alongside guest directors Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi discussing season one of The Mandalorian.

Favreau had a clear vision for The Mandalorian from the get-go: “It was specifically doing a version of Star Wars that felt small and felt like it reflected the genres that influenced George [Lucas] originally: space adventure, westerns, samurai films, WWII adventure films — those are the genres that inspired the tropes.”

Favreau added, “These were at once original, but also a reflection of our cinematic past.” The approach has culminated in, arguably, the best Star Wars spin-off to date.

The Mandalorian is expected to return to Disney+ this October as principal photography on the second season was completed before the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
